The Metaphor Problem
by Scott Smith
His last anthology, When I Was A Loser, has an essay by Will Clarke that’s caused a ruckus in Rhode Island (by the way, when is the last time you thought of Rhode Island?).
Apparently the essay’s title, “How to Kill a Boy Nobody Likes,” should have had a ;-> printed next to it because the title is metaphorical, not literal. Some parents in R.I. didn’t care for the essay being available to their children.
I suggest you take a look at Will’s profile on Amazon as well.
